Why Have You Done This?
Jonah 1:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Why did Jonah want to disobey God? It wasn't that he just wanted to rebel against God. He tried to get away from the presence of God. Our human flesh does not want to have anything to do with God. Have you ever looked in the mirror of self and wondered why you did a certain something? Why did Eve go out and do what God plainly told her the one thing not to do? Because of Adam and Eve we were cursed to die and suffer. Now we are not talking about the lost, we talk about the ones that are saved and know better. We could go down all of the scripture looking at all the followers of God and see where they made a choice to go against God. The reason that the saved can't keep themselves is because we are all sinners, we live in a sinful body. One can't sow a seed in the flesh and expect it to grow spiritual fruit. Even a farmer knows that he can't plant an apple seed expecting to grow an orange. Having a thought is not the sin, it's when the thought is acted upon is when sin is conceived. What's so appealing to the comfort of our bed, the softness of our pillows that causes us to not come to church on Sunday mornings? Every day Christians are making the choice to do what they want to do instead of turning their life back to God. Just as God prepared a fish for Jonah He will prepare something in the Christians life to turn them back. There is a time coming in a backslid Christians life that God will either turn you around or take you out. You're either running from God because you're lost or because you're backslid. If you keep going back to the sins of this world and can't seem to avoid those things that you're probably lost. Once you've been born a again you will not want to do those things because you're a changed person. Just as any good and loving parent will do God will also chasten His children when they do wrong. He does this because He loves His children and wants them to behave.

Pride Breaker
Jonah 4:1-11 (Part of the Communion Services series).
God will take us thru things that will break our pride. Things that break our pride of thinking that we know more than God. Jonah thought he knew better than God even after the thousands repented. Jonah got mad at God when He showed mercy. God had already showed His mercy towards Jonah. We are the same at times when we look at others and think that another doesn't deserve His mercy. Jonah tried to watch what was going to take place after he preached to Ninevah and God took care of him and protected him from the heat. In his prideful arrogance he forgot about what took place and felt that the city should have been destroyed. How often do we go thru troubles and trials of our own making because we won't soften our hearts and do what God has said? Don't let yourself get in the way of Gods mercies. Repent of your sins. Turn away from your sins. How many times do you come to church mad at another person thinking they shouldn't have Gods mercy? All along knowing we NEVER deserved Gods mercies ourself.

A Firm Foundation
1 Corinthians 3:10-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
The word foundation is mentioned 84 times in the bible. When one decided to build a building one sits down and figures how to do it. Then the footers are dug down to solid ground to have a firm foundation. So how firm is your foundation with Jesus Christ? The first step in having a firm foundation in Christ is being saved. When tragedy shows up and shakes your life will you still stand? Acts 8:5-8 We have no idea what we will face each day but we must trust in the one that does know, God. Acts 8:30-31 How can a lost person be saved unless someone tell them? Teens are looking for guidance. Adults should watch what they teach at all times. Young people should find an elder and allow them to teach them a firm foundation.

At the End of Your Rope
Jonah 2:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
When a man goes far enough from God, it takes desperate measures to go back. There are many in this world that they know that they've been saved but they've turned away from God. Even though those have turned away, God NEVER let's them go. God knows how to make you pray. To some that turn away, it takes the worst punishment for them to turn back to God. Man changes all the time but god has never changed. Not one personal can look upon another and judge them to say that they are being punished due to their backslid life. God will never give up on you if you are one of His. God was not joking around and laughing about it when He put His ONLY son on the cross and turn ed His back on Him to allow Him to die. God is not out to punish people. God just wants us to obey. All that one has to do is to confess their sins and turn back towards Him. Do you think God would take you home if you are behaving badly enough?

A Rebellious Dove
Jonah 1:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
The word Jonah means, dove. We do not think of a dove as being rebellious and yet we look at our own and wonder why we are so rebellious. When God breathed into Adam, He breathed into him a living soul that will go back to God in the end for judgement. God created man in order for man to worship Him but man also has a choice. We as a human want to do what we want to do. Maybe God has called you to do something. If that is the case, stop running and surrender to God and do as He's said. Have you thought that God has never called you to do something? He has told you to arise and go seeking those that should be saved. God has called us to be faithful and to pray. The one major problem with the universal church is faithfulness. We also need to be faithful to each other and to get along with each other. God has also called us to be faithful to the church. We are to assemble ourselves together in corporate worship. How would you feel if the pastor decided not to be faithful and not show up for church? We've also been called to pray, pray with stopping. How many of you actually pray, praying for what ever Gods will is you'll be perfectly alright with it? Even during regular church services when the time of prayer comes some choose not to pray. How can you call yourself a Christian and not be faithful and pray? There are people that are running from God and being rebellious against His calling. How far do you have to run before you are away from God? If you are save and truly a Christian and rebelling against God, there will be a "but the Lord" moment will take place in your life. If you born again, then you have a father and He loves you therefore He will chastise the ones that are His. While you rebel against God you not only affect yourself, but you also affect those around you.
